About Officer Pfeifer
Dear Parents and Students,
In Chandler, most Middle Schools and High Schools have a Chandler Police Officer assigned to their campuses. Funding for School Resource Officers (SRO) are provided by sources such as the City of Chandler, Chandler School District, or the Arizona School Safety Grant. Pueblo was awarded the School Safety Grant to fund their School Resource Officer Program for three years beginning the 2013-2014 school year. The intent of the program is to place SRO’s on school grounds to contribute to safe school environments that are conducive to teaching and learning. Officers maintain a visible presence on campus; deter delinquent and violent behaviors; serve as an available resource to the school community; and provide students and staff with Law-Related Education (LRE) instruction and training.
This year is Officer Pfeifer’s first year as a School Resource Officer. He applied for the position after participating in his first Chandler Police Department Youth Academy, which is held during breaks and summer recess. Prior to applying to become an SRO, Officer Pfeifer spent over a decade as a uniformed Patrol Officer, two years as a Field Training Officer, four years as a Detective in Chandler PD’s Financial Crimes Unit, and over seven years as a Tactical Operator on Chandler PD’s SAU Team (Special Assignments Unit, also known as SWAT). He enjoys church activities, time with his family, watching sports, strength training, and making a positive difference in the community as a School Resource Officer.
